Hi all...I had a Fascinate with the standard 16G SD card. I moved the data off the card to a computer, and replaced the 16G with a 32G card.
I moved all the data back to the card, and everything seemed fine. I had a bunch of vacation pics stored under the DCIM directory, along with a number of pictures taken with the phone.
Right away, pictures started to disappear. I reloaded them via USB, and assumed it was just one of those things.
I took pictures at an event, came back, and all the pictures were gone. A bunch of files showed up in the LOST.DIR file.
A bit irked, I reformated the card via the phone. Loaded some pictures on the phone in a separate subdirectiry. The next few days I started losing pictures again. After a number of reformats, I sent the card back thinking it was defective.
I received a new card (both cards major brands purchased directly from Amazon), formatted it, and used it just for picture-taking with the phone. Seemed to work, but I got up the next day, and the phone said there was no SD-card mounted, and it should be re-formatted. I did so, and sometimes loading a few test pics, and sometimes just taking test pics with the camera. Each time I started losing pics, and seeing files appear in the LOST.DIR.
Is there anything special about using the 32G card in the Fascinate? I thought I had maybe a misbehaving application, but I've been careful to use only stock Fascinate apps.
thanks for any suggestions!
I dont think it is a bad SD card. I had a PNY card in it for a month, and it kept getting corrupted. I exchanged it last month for a Sandisk, and the problem remains.
The phone the SD card is bad again last night. The only option I had was to reformat the thing.
